PWN Norway Monthly Meeting: Your Elevator Pitch (Stavanger)

07 March 2018 19:00 - 21:00 Innovation Dock


Sean Paul Shanor will share some tips and tricks for developing a compelling elevator speech. This speech is all about who you are, what you do, and what you want to do! It´s name comes from the fact you should be able to deliver your short speech in the span of an elevator ride.

 By having an elevator pitch handy, you will be able to share your credentials quickly and effectively with people you´ve just met.

 When you are job searching, you can use an elevator pitch while fielding potential employers. It´s a great tool to gain confidence in introducing yourself to hiring managers and company representatives.

Moreover, you can use your elevator speech at networking events, professional association programs, or any other type of gathering to introduce yourself or your ideas. For example, you can use one to introduce your organization to clients or customers. You could use one in your company to sell a new idea to your boss, or to inform others about change initiatives you are leading.

By the end of our session you will be able to:

  • Identify your goal
  • Explain what you do
  • Communicate your Unique Selling Point (USP)
  • Engage with a question
  • Put it all together
  • Practice

 We will also have a Q & A session to follow.
